We booked the trip via email with Jigden before arriving to Mongolia. He was very responsive and answered all our questions. Pick up at the airport was smooth and we stayed in the hostel the first night before starting our 8 day trip the next day. Guide Our guide was very friendly and was also our cook for the trip. Her english was excellent, we had no issue communicating with her. She took us up to see the most beautiful sunset at the top of the sand dunes in Gobi. We felt she lacked a bit of knowledge of the history of some of the sites and couldn't really just us much information. Other than that she took care of us very well. Driver The driver was amazing. He got us from A to B safely and drove at a good speed so we spent less time in the car than expected. Food As this was a budget trip, food was very basic. We had mainly a pasta/ rice dish for lunch and then something lighter in the evening. We had snacks with us for evenings when the meals were a bit small. We enjoyed the home made dumplings the most. Hostel It was very basic. We could hear everything happening the bathroom next to our room which wasn't very pleasant. It was okay for a night sleep. The hostel stay before and after the trip was included but you could stay elsewhere in Ulaanbataar if you prefer. Tips: > Bring your own sleeping bag if you have one. They do provide sleeping bags but sometimes it's nicer to have your own. > Bring a travel/ camping pillow. > Buy snacks and drinks at the convenience stores. The homestays are quite basic. > Treat this like a camping trip, you will need torch, toilet paper, basic amenities

From the first communication with Idre tours, we had immediate replies from Jigden, who provided answers and suggestions. We had a short amount of time and a lot of expectations...that were beautifully met! The hostel in Ulaanbatar is comfortable and clean. The staggering is friendly and helpful. The tour out into the country was well-planned and allowed us to see and interact with the people. We had our own vehicle, driver, guide/cook to help us better enjoy the cultural moments of staying in gers and eating a variety of Mongolian dishes. A great trip. Highly recommend!

The hostel is located near the centre of Ulanbaatar. It's clean and the kitchen is equipped good. It is possible to book a tour there too. I did a 8 day Gobi trip and it was wonderful. The owner offers many tours and is very flexible in organizing and if you have special wishes he will try to make that happen. In addition it was less expensive than every other offer we got from other hostels.

Idre absolutely knocked it out of the park. My husband and I had such an incredible 8 day/7 night trip through the Gobi Desert with Idre Tours + Hostel. Everything went incredibly smoothly, starting with our initial request to Idre for pricing and availability. Ulzii was incredibly patient and responsive to all of our questions and made sure we had all of the information we needed for our trip, and we’re so grateful! Our guide, Tsengel, went above and beyond. He was helpful and informative throughout the trip about what we were seeing and what to expect, and he was also an AMAZING cook. We expected that we’d get a lot of repetition in our meals given access to markets, tools available, etc, but he somehow managed to make every meal different and they were all just so delicious! Our driver, Shijre, was also spectacular. Mongolian roads are quite bumpy and many of the roads that we traveled were unpaved, but he navigated them like a pro and made us feel safe and comfortable the entire trip. We also enjoyed chatting with him a bit at camps each night. We can’t thank Idre enough for this trip of a lifetime! We’re already talking about coming back to do a different part of Mongolia.

We had a 6 day tour (the whole tour was 12 days but we could only do half of it) with Ulzii and Dauka in the Gobi, and it was the most wonderful time ever. Everything during the tour was excellent, well organised, safe, interesting, beautiful and fun. But the best part is the human quality of Ulzii and Dauka, they love to work doing this and you can tell. We are super grateful of having spend this days in the Gobi, It was a short time but it felt like a deep dive into the amazing nomadic lifestyle and Mongolia nature. Note that I'm vegan and this can be an issue in Mongolia, but Ulzii made it no issue at all preparing delicious vegan food, and always asking for special food for me, this was absolutely priceless. Thank you guys so much for sharing your culture and wisdom with us, we'll keep Mongolia in our hearts. PS: We also stayed a couple of nights in the hostel in UB and everything was great, warm, clean, comfortable and quiet. Perfect to rest after the days in the Gobi.
